- Artist: Marc E. Bassy
- Track: American Dream Life
- Producer: Count Bassy
Though the popular imagination has traditionally painted America as a land of opportunity where anyone with a solid work ethic can get get ahead, that illusion is becoming harder to maintain with each passing year. On American Dream Life, the final track on his debut street album, Marc E. Bassy offers a caustic take on the state of the Union, singing about the poverty, suffering and death that are widespread in the U.S., thanks to the greed of the 1%. Frequent collaborator Count Bassy handles production, and an uncredited director provides the provocative visuals, which feature Bassy and a classroom full of students symbolically setting fire to copies off Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. For Dream Life and much more, cop the artist's Only the Poets Vol. 1 EP, available in the Booth for free streaming and download.
